NEW DELHI: Asees Singh Chadha, the 19-year-old nephew of late businessman Ponty Chadha, who was arrested in connection with a hit-and-run incident which claimed the life of a 51-year-old woman from Turkmenistan on Monday, failed to get bail on Wednesday, as a city court threw out his application.

Soon after the rejection of his plea by Metropolitan Magistrate Ambika Singh, Asees’ lawyers moved the Sessions Court, which will hear his application on Thursday.

Chadha, who was driving a Bentley, was arrested and charged with rash driving and culpable homicide not amounting to murder after he allegedly injured Alajanowa Gulsat, a tourist from Turkmenistan, fatally by ramming into an autorickshaw she was travelling in along with two friends, at high speed. The other two women survived the crash, while the auto driver received multiple injuries.

Asees is the son of Rajinder Singh Chadha, Ponty’s brother and the current chairman of Wave Group. Rajinder is also known as Raju Chadha.
